Meet Corrina

Here’s everything you ever wanted to know about me:  (or were bored enough to read!)

I am a “lover not a fighter” type.

But, if we MUST disagree, let’s get right to it – down and dirty.  And then, let me buy you cup of coffee and laugh about it.

I’m a fan of being real – whether you like it or not – kind of people.

I love Jesus, and mountain lakes, and I know all the words to “Rocky Mountain High,” by John Denver.

I have an opinion about everything from Mod Podge to prison reform, and yes, I WOULD like to talk about it.

I’m a citizen of the world.  I’ve lived in three countries; England (where I was born, and spent much of my childhood), Germany and the good ol’ U.S of A – to which I chose to pledge my allegiance, and became a naturalized citizen at the age of 25.

North Dakota, Wyoming, and California are states where I have resided, but home is where the heart is, and mine is on the open road.  Traveling with my family, exploring the world, meeting people, and singing the stories of everyone I meet would be a dream come true.

I’m a big believer in the idea that you MAKE a house a home, and so therefore, it matters not WHERE you hang your hat, but rather, how much you love and use that hat.  Being good stewards of our blessings breeds thankfulness and mindfulness.

I believe that “Every good gift, and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”  James 1:7 – The Holy Bible

Here are some pictures of my “good and perfect gifts.”

    I like this. I hate that I have to get to know you over the internet even though we worship together at the same church. I guess that’s life in Silicon Valley.
    Good job!

      Claudia – I’m so glad you like it. I know it’s hard to get to know people fully when we don’t have hours to sit and chat. I’m glad we can enjoy learning about each other this way! Thanks so much for reading…I appreciate it so much! Blessings,
